July 18, 2019 – Longan Vision is a startup based out of The Forge incubator that focuses on developing smart goggles to improve work experience and efficiency. They have developed the Fusion Vision System [FVS], an Augmented Reality Smart Visor System that could be attached to the firefighter helmet.
“FVS provides enhanced vision and information sharing abilities that allow firefighters to see through smoke, locate victims and find fire sources. By using the live video stream and indoor localization provided by FVS, the commanders can make better decisions and help firefighters exfiltrate the compound.” – Longan Vision
“Congratulations to Forge client Longan Vision on raising $1.2 MM from investors and government partners. Longan Vision is developing an AR/VR system that will help firefighters across the world navigate high-heat high-smoke conditions. Happy for this hard-working team of McMaster grads. ” – Monika Yazdanian, Director, The Forge Startup Incubator at McMaster Innovation Park.
